The Condo is ideal for a couple & has a lovely view of the beach . It is also an ideal spot to watch the weekly Friday night Fireworks display . The Condo is very comfortable & was well equipped for our stay . The booking process was easy .
Overall an enjoyable experience .
The location was perfect, walking distance to the beach, Ala Moana Shopping Centre and public transport. The weather was perfect every day and I never got sick of sitting on that balcony and that beautiful view. Would not hesitate recommending it to my friends as the price was very reasonable compared to other hotels.
Very nice updates studio condo in the Ilikai tower. Lots of amenities nearby including ABC Superetteand the AlaMoana mall with a Foodland supermarket. It is a bit of a walk to Kalakaua Ave heart of Waikiki - about 20 minutes.
We stayed at this condo and highly recommend it. The owner was very sweet and helpful with all my questions. This condo was very nice! Great views of the beach, Diamond Head, and marina. Like other reviews you can see the fireworks show on Friday night and the luau next door. It is located close to restaurants (Harbor Pub across from the marina has good pizza and hamburgers and are reasonably priced), shopping (I recommend you visit Dukes Market great souvenir deals), and transportation. Shuttles to points of interest pick up in front of the hotel. I will stay here again when I return.
Very impressed with the location and the condo itself had lots of potential. Some small issues we noted: the safe was locked when we arrived and when we rang we were told it was not for guest use - a little strange. The condo was not very well cleaned with lots of surfaces finger smudge marked and the coffee table just plain dirty. One of the bedside lamps didn't work and had obviously been unplugged by the previous tenant - this has not been picked up by the housekeeping person. Kitchen could have been better stocked - for example no kitchen scissors and the trash bags provided for the kitchen bin were way too small and of no use.
Having said that these were small issues and did not impact on our enjoyment of the place or our stay much. The overall decor is modern and pleasant, the view form the balcony is wonderful and we had free Luau shows every night as well as a "right in the middle of it" view of the Friday fireworks.
If housekeeping improved a little it would be stellar place to stay!
Great time and the location is always the best. All was as expected, organised, and pretty clean/tidy. The comment I will leave with you is that the apartment needs updating and some maintenance to call out for the rate that is being charged. I left a message with the owner that I apologized in advance if they take offence, but I believe in being open/honest. The lights by the bed cannot be turned on except by plugging and unplugging them from the wall; switches on the lights/walls do not operate them. The bathroom faucets are missing a part (still work) and there is rust around the base. The ironing board is bent and very old and not of good quality and almost unusable, and the iron is passable with a cord that is too short. The furnishings are a bit outdated and are missing handles such as for the wardrobe in the bedroom area, and there are knocks and marks on all the furniture that need refurbishment.
As mentioned, I did enjoy my stay and did not spend a lot of time in the unit, but did take full advantage of the balcony and the other amenities of the hotel, etc. I appreciate the use of your place and am pointing out the above areas of improvement in the hope that it is useful in identifying areas that you can update for future occupants.
Please contact me again if there are any specific questions as to the above, and thank you again for the use of your place…had a great time in Hawaii.
The apartment was clean and tidy, and when I realized the hair dryer didn't work, it was quickly replaced. We had a lovely view of the lagoon, and could watch the Friday fireworks from apartment balcony. The pool at the Ilikai was good, with great sun. If you want to be more in the action, waikiki beach, then you have to catch a bus, but that is straight out the door, or it is about a 15 minute walk. The big shopping centre at ala moana is about 7 minute walk. ABC store, coffee place and a bar with cheap cocktails for happy hour straight across the road.
